I was in the Imperial Sand Dune in Southern California testing some prototype suspension parts. I was running a section of whoops while fine-tuning the settings. I was feeling confident and got a bit carried away. I went in too fast, got crossed up after taking a bad bounce. When the bike hit the next whoop, it was almost parallel to it rather than perpendicular. I was catapulted off the bike and landed about 20' from it. The landing knocked the wind out of me. I'm glad I had my neck and knee braces on as well as a full pressure suit. The bike flipped over, hit very hard too with the right side of the bar hitting first. The bars bent as far as they could before breaking. It was a violent crash but the bike and I both faired pretty well considering.
